Nicolás Lucero de Godoy, who married María Montoya, settled in the Río Abajo, giving his age as fifty in 1696. In 1710 he was living in Albuquerque, and by 1716 he gave his age as seventy. His family, and that of Bernardina de Salas y Trujillo [his father's third mother-in-law] were considered among the original founders of Albuquerque in 1706. Nicolás died on April 27, 1727, and María Montoya on January 12, 1740. Their known children were: Pedro; Francisca, who married Juan Antonio Apodaca in 1716; and Manuela, who married Francisco Gutiérrez in 1709. A Luis Lucero, who married María Romero at Isleta in 1719 might also have been his son, and also Miguel Lucero, husband of Angela Vallejo.

Nicolás Lucero and María Montoya had two other sons: Juan, born in Bernalillo, who was 23 when he married María López Olguín, 15, born at El Paso, in Santa Fe on Mar. 6, 1696 (DM, 1696, nos. 24, 32); here the mother's name is given as "de Vera" instead of Montoya, which makes her a daughter or granddaughter of Diego de Montoya and María Ortiz de Vera, or Baca. Miguel was the other son, as we definitely learn from his marriage to Angela Teresa Vallejo in 1700 at Bernalillo, where he was stationed as a soldier.
